Birds on a Branch
In continuation of the regular presentation of new wedding invitation design each Wednesday, here is a new design featuring birds on a branch. I often associate of birds with love. In fact, I already have an invitation featuring birds on a wire, and three designs featuring doves.
I was curious about this association between birds and affection, so I did some some brief research. I found that origin of referring to people as "love birds" comes from an actual species of bird: the lovebird. A lovebird is a type of parrot, which got its name for its very sociable and affectionate nature. When a lovebird bonds with its mate, their bonding usually lasts their entire life.
In feng shui tradition, the ability to fly and soar high up in the sky is closely associated with the ability to be near heavens, as well as the ability to serve as messengers from heavens.
In traditional feng shui applications, birds are considered powerful symbols of new opportunities that are there for you even in times of adversity. Birds can also symbolize love and commitment or abundance and good luck. New opportunity, love, commitment, abundance, good luck, no wonder I think of birds as a great image to be included as two people begin a life together!
What do you think of birds as a symbol of love?
